Cork’s newest restaurant is now officially open for business.
Dwyer’s of Cork on Washington Street, which replaces Rachel’s restaurant, was forced to delay its planned launch during the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival after a Circuit Court judge refused an application to sell alcohol at the premises.
Now, with all the correct licences in place, the casual eatery and music venue will open its doors to the public at 4pm today in preparation for a busy Christmas period.
They announced the news on Facebook, posting: “Our beaming concierge Ryan is ready to take your booking.”
The original Dwyer’s of Cork factory operated at the same location more than 150 years ago. At its peak, the company employed 3,000 people.
“Dwyers will offer a less formal dining experience in response to feedback from customers who said that they were looking for ‘casual dining’ in relaxed surroundings.” said Rachel Allen of the new venture.
“We have lots of cosy nooks and crannies as well as some beautiful, historical artefacts all of which combines to create something totally new for Cork.”
The Dwyer family have made some wonderful old memorabilia available for display throughout the venue, which you can check out seven days a week from 12 noon.
